Sissons SilkGlo is premier quality paint that gives interiors a soft silky sheen. Formulated to be highly durable and washable, Sissons SilkGlo is the ideal protection and finishing for interior areas where cleaning is a perquisite –  the kitchen, children’s room, reception area, office partitioning and decorative materials such as glass fabric or wall coverings


Surface preparation should be properly carried out before application. All loose, flaking, chalking or friable materials should be removed. Make good any defects and ensure that the substrate is clean and free from contaminants, such as oil, grease, grime and fungal growth.

For new surfaces, ensure that the substrate is sufficiently dry (below 16% moisture) prior to paint application.

For redecoration, ensure that the previous coating is in good condition, otherwise remove via water-jet and/or scraping then treat as per new surface.
